MONTVILLE, NJ - TAP into Montville invites all candidates in Montville Township to submit statements and other content, as well as advertise on TAP into Montville. Below are TAP into Montville's Election Policies, which are the same for all TAPinto.net sites.
 
Candidate Statements
Candidates may submit a maximum of one candidate statement per week (including photos) from Labor Day up through the week before Election Day. Publication of candidate statements is at the sole discretion of the editor of that town’s site. No statements will be published from the Sunday before Election Day through Election Day.
 
Statements must be factually accurate and may not be defamatory. If there are questions as to the factual accuracy of a statement, the candidate will be asked to provide documentation for the claims. If he/she fails to do so, the statement will not be published until the candidate revises the statement accordingly. Similarly, if a statement is deemed factually inaccurate or defamatory it will not be published and the candidate will have the option to revise his/her statement accordingly.
 

If a statement is published and later is alleged to be factually inaccurate, the statement will be temporarily removed from the site and the candidate will be asked to provide documentation for the claims. Should he/she do so, the statement will be republished. If he/she fails to do so, he/she may revise the statement accordingly or it will remain unpublished. Statements should be submitted on the site directly.
 
Letters to the Editor
 
Anyone may submit Letters to the Editor at any time up until the day before Election Day. Publication of candidate statements is at the sole discretion of the editor of that town’s site. The letter must be factually accurate and may not be defamatory. It must not be anonymous. The letter writer must submit his/her phone number with the letter. The phone number will not be published – it will be used for verification purposes. Should the letter be deemed inaccurate or defamatory, the letter will not be published and the letter writer will be offered the opportunity to either provide documentation for the claims or to revise the letter accordingly. Letters should be submitted directly on the site.
